Not only a place of staggering scenic beauty and amazing wildlife, the Antarctic Peninsula Region has an immensely rich and fascinating human history that stretches from the journey of Magellan until today. The Storied Ice: Exploration, Discovery, and Adventure in Antarctica’s Peninsula Region vividly recounts this dramatic human story of Antarctica’s most-visited region.
Several expeditions to this part of Antarctica are well known, in particular the legendary Ernest Shackleton and his Endurance expedition. That journey is here along with many other less familiar but exciting adventures: from pack ice crushing ships and fearless sea voyages in tiny boats to hauling sledges for hundreds of miles and brave pilots flying the Antarctic skies. These are the tales of sealers, whalers, pioneer aviators, scientists, and several expeditions of Antarctica’s “Heroic Age”. All of them are woven together, placing the individually captivating stories in a historical context that casts new light into each adventure.
